We are a friendly, inclusive group of people of different ages and interests in the environment. 

​ 

Most of us live in Royal Wootton Bassett and the surrounding areas. Members include long-time environmental campaigners as well as those who are just starting to want to find out more, and everyone in between. Whether you are enthusiastic about sustainable food or into recycling and zero waste, looking after our local wildlife and land, or reducing carbon emissions, you’ll find someone here to share your interests. We meet regularly to share information and ideas about living more sustainably – both as individuals and as a town. Everyone is welcome! 

​ 

Our aims 

  

As a group we want to help and support our town to; 

​ 

  •     Reduce emissions to net carbon zero by 2030 

  •     Protect our green spaces and wildlife  

  •     Use more sustainable resources, services and products and support our local businesses 

  

We engage with our town and county councils, MP, schools, local businesses and other organisations to raise environmental awareness and discuss what we can do in our town. We've put on a range of events from film screenings, political debates, exhibitions, tree-planting, an Eco-Fest, clothes swaps and more. Based on our joint passions, we’ve formed project groups to work towards our aims.  

​ 

Our Active Travel project group is working to reduce carbon emissions by campaigning for a network of safe cycle paths throughout our town and for the long awaited cycle path into Swindon. 

​ 

Our Rewilding group is working to increase our town’s biodiversity through tree-planting initiatives and campaigning to let our road verges, parks and gardens bloom with wildflowers and more. 

​ 

Our Sustainable RWB group is working to help our town reduce plastic, waste and emissions, promote recycling and reuse, and champion our local, independent businesses.
